About Leli Laurie Chen, MD

  • Dr. Chen was born in Rhode Island, but her family moved to San Antonio when she was a toddler, so she calls Texas her home! When she’s not at work, Dr. Chen says “anything food related, I’m there!” She is always on the lookout to try something new and delicious. Dr. Chen also enjoys traveling and hiking, anything music-related, and of course, spending time with loved ones. Included in her favorite area locales are Granny’s Tacos food truck, and also enjoying the sunset over Lake Travis.

What I love most about Family Medicine is the breadth of care provided during every stage of life and how it allows us as physicians to connect with our patients and their families in a special, integral way. This includes having conversations with new parents and helping with the care of their newborn child, to having difficult end-of-life discussions with patients and their loved ones, and everything in between, thus helping build meaningful, long-lasting relationships. When a patient comes in to my clinic, the most important thing is for them to feel cared for and respected. I’m here to listen to and advocate for my patients and ultimately, to collaborate with them toward the betterment of their health.
